AR lowers are AR lowers. They are all pretty much the same with the exception of logo and color. Since AR lowers are all AR lowers any parts kit will work with them.

BTW: an all caps lock post really annoys people, you'll probably get a better answer if you don't caps lock it.

Also the search button is your friend.

1. Capslock means YELLING!
2. There are a lot of 7.62x39 uppers out there. You can buy the upper complete, and the lower is not hard to assemble.
3. Lowers and parts are all mil-spec, i.e. Stag parts work in Colt, Colt works in Stag lowers, DPMS works with Centermass and Spike's etc.

Quite possibly the longest sentence I have ever seen in my life!

If your really concerned about building a lower, i'd suggest purchasing a built lower.

I do not want to buy a complete lower because I want a timney trigger & a custom buttstock. Is it better to buy a complete lower & change the parts out?

How much money do you plan on spending? If you want to save some $$$, build the lower yourself.

Not sure on budget but if I am going to build it I want to due it right the first time. That is why I am asking for in put in different lowers.

Pretty much any lower is a winner. Building a lower is very very simple. AR15.com has a great tutorial, the link is at the bottom of my post. All I use is a couple punches and a hammer and I have built 1 upper, maybe 3 lowers, one of which was in 9mm.
